Matúš Hyžný received his Ph.D. from Comenius University in Bratislava (Slovakia) in 2012; his doctoral thesis was titled "Malacostracan associations of the Central Paratethys – systematics, taphonomy, palaeoecology and palaeobiogeography". In 2013–2015 he was a research associate at the Natural History Museum in Vienna (Austria) where he studied the Cenozoic biogeography of Western Tethys decapod crustaceans. His interests cover the systematics, fossil record and biogeography of decapods with a special reference to axiidean ghost shrimps. However, he feels at home with any group of malacostracan crustaceans including mantis shrimps and isopods.
